San Felipe De Neri Church, Albuquerque Reviews - Write a Review
Calm, soothing and perfect for your prayers alongside your vacation. The area around also made the environment soothing at that time, and we sure were happy that we spent our time here. The locals said that it's a pretty nice place for attending mass. I will say the details aren't as complex as other nice churches in New Mexico, but what captivates is the preservation of this church. Alongside it as well is a gift shop that was your pretty regular Christian gift shop with some merchandise personalized of the sight.
VERY BEAUTIFUL!!! Whoever have the place a one star review is not a person who prays to the almighty one above, if you catch my drift! I found that church to be one of the most beautiful places I've ever had the pleasure to see. I was literally overcome with a sense of awe and I felt beauty for the first time in a while.
A place of calm in the middle if a tourist mob. There were three tour buses full of people scrambling to buy souvenirs and a whole crew of electricians laying wiring for a film crew to use the next day. I went into the church and the quiet and calm were immediate. Ten minutes re-energized me .
Pretty historic church. A must-see in Old Town.
The church is indeed beautiful, except for the statue of the patron in the very center behind the altar and a tiny little crucifix. This was a distraction as we processed to the front to receive. The congregation is awesome and participates fully. The music is great, and has a distinctly hispanic flavor. The priest, however, was not very respectful of the altar, or the tabernacle. He was very loose with the liturgy, and the order of Mass. This is just my opinion. I would visit the church to see it, but go to the Holy Mass somewhere else.
